I did try that, but it is the upgraded version of libmarble that
prevents us from seeing the pictures in Digikam. See this post, in
which some guy named "Tobias Schula" :) correctly suggests that I
downgrade libmarble to see the photos:

I don't even know how to do that. Let's see, I run gbd, type
"digikam", and what then?

I see that in the post I mentioned earlier that even then you
suggested to not use that PPA. I will disable it again, but it was not
the problem as the problem occured _before_ I added it (adding it was
an attempt at a solution).
